Hot Tips for EBSCO Database Searching:
-If your search term has more than one word, enclose it in “quotations” so it will be searched as a phrase instead of individual words.
-Remember that when using a database you cannot use full-text searching as you can on Google.
-Utilize “limiters” located on the left of your screen to specify search criteria and narrow down the search results.
